    Brad Laner founded Medicine, whose first album in a decade was released in 2013.

Limited edition of 1000 LPs, including 500 in red/yellow haze. Album art by Robert Beatty, including an 18” x 24” poster packaged with each LP. You can't get away from the sun. Brad Laner returns with his third solo album, created in the winds swirling around the reuniting of his cult noise-pop band and American shoegaze pioneers, Medicine. Like Neighbor Singing and Natural Selections before it, Nearest Suns was composed, played, and recorded entirely in Laner's Granada Hills, California home by Laner himself. It's an old new universe in twelve songs, shattering what it means to be called a singer-songwriter, messing around with the notion of getting older, and soundtracking the infinite distortion and infinite harmony of falling in and out of love.
